Merzimen çayını Fırat nehrinin birleştiği noktada dik kayalıkların üzerindedir. Rumkale kasaba köyünün ve Halfetiden ulaşımı ise teknelerle çok kolay bir şekilde olabilir.

Rumkale iki beden şeklindedir. Birinci bedeni kalenin doğu, Kuzey ve batı kısmına kayalığın dik bir şekilde yontulması bir şekilde oluşmuştur. İkinci bedeni doğal surun sert kalker kesme taşlarıyla sur duvarı olarak yapılmıştır.

This place locates between Gaziantep and Sanliurfa. All about fishing and swimming. But when I get there lucky for me I find a man who is renting boat to drink Turkish rail on the river. It was perfect experience for me.

This place is a bit of a detour on the road from Sanliurfa to Antep, but it's well worth it for a glimpse of the mighty Euphrates and to see the fascinating sunken city. Don't be conned into taking a hugely expensive private boat tour....More

Tours in the lake are really cheap and take at most 1 hour . You can enjoy with dolphin shaped canoes on the water but you cannot go far away. Small boutique motels are nice
